THE buzz and excitement of the CPL is in the air. The Caribbean’s highly awaited cricketing event, the Caribbean Premier League, brought cricketing fervour over the last couple of weeks before moving to Guyana for the final leg on Wednesday, September 20.

Fans have been waiting with bated breath to watch their favourite cricketers battle it out amongst one another. This is a time of boundless excitement for cricket fanatics across Guyana and around the region as I found while moving around the country and in front of the stadium at Providence.

The last leg of the 2022 CPL moved to Guyana for action-packed cricket. And fans have not been disappointed. Fans turned out in record numbers to watch their favourite teams and players at Providence with butterflies in their stomachs.  Fans watched with bated breath for the outcome of two matches on Wednesday, September 21. Barbados versus St Lucia in the day-header and the night-header involving local favourite Amazon Warriors. Guyana had four matches going into the evening and at the bottom of the table with just three points in six matches played. It is do or die — must win all four remaining matches to have a chance at the playoffs next week. If they lose any of the remaining encounters, then Warriors can’t be a contender for the championship trophy. Some of the fans could feel the butterflies in their stomachs as Guyana went into the home opener. In fact, fans were also pleased that Barbados’s win in the first match on Wednesday improved Guyana’s chance of a spot in the playoff next week.

Excitement was at a fever pitch around the stadium and all over the country as I travelled around on Tuesday and Wednesday. I expect the same as I move around over the next week.

Yours Truly,
Vishnu Bisram
